    1. Hamilton – Most of the time looked unstoppable in the lead. Showed he has an edge in race craft and race pace over Nico. Made no stupid mistakes as in earlier seasons. Was beat in qualifying however I’m not convinced he sets up his car for quali.
    2. Alonso – same old story with Alonso, seems to deliver regardless of car deficit even though his quali pace is still lacking.
    3. Ricciardo – I’m probably offending most of you by placing Ricciardo so far down the list but I simply refuse to believe he’s THAT much better than Vettel. I think Redbull have the 2nd fastest car this season, and therefore I’d expect Ricciardo to deliver exactly the results he got. Whatever Vettel’s problems are, it seems wrong to just explain results gap by Ricciardo’s excellence. Having said that he was very good in races and quali. Never made mistakes and showed good pace throughout the season.

    On TV because very few parents are stupid enough to let their 3 year old kid in a go cart.

    Strongly disagree with raising weight limit to allow drivers to stay at their comfortable weight.
    F1 is a sport of speed and weight proportionally counteracts speed.

    1. Let the teams design cars as fast as they can make them. Too much effort was spent making racing appealing to general public instead of concentrating on ensuring F1 is still a pinnacle of motor sport which it is losing slowly.
    Safety keeps getting better and yet cars get slower.
    2. Driver is part of the team, if team tries to save weight with car why shouldn’t driver contribute to overall package.
    3. Driver is an athlete of sort and just as in any other sport you need to push your body to get result. You don’t see fat runners or short basketball players. Some body types are just not suited to certain sports and so in F1 you need to be small to go quicker. If you’re not then you don’t belong in F1.

    As good as WEC is it’s not on frequently enough and when it happens it’s too long. Perhaps I’m too F1 trained where I have to watch lap times every lap and WEC needs a different approach.

    I’m guessing then Nascar is not at all physically demanding? Can’t see 70 or even 60 year old racing F1 cars at speed.

    Exactly how is pass on a broken car be praised so highly? perhaps Petrov on Button should be considered too then?

    What is so sensitive about that information? Who doesn’t know cars are set up differently and higher drag is expected.
    I wonder more why he posted that. Was that his attempt to blame the engineers for not knowing that graph before quali?

    Best Driver: Vettel or Alonso. Vettel for great pace on 30 lap old tires. Alonso for quick in lap when it mattered.
    Worst Driver: Maldonado
    Best Team: Redbull
    Worst Team: McLaren for not ensuring Button does not come out behind Kovi, slow pit stop for Hamilton and not telling Ham how close Vettel was.
    Best Overtake: none
    Best Funny- moment: Vergne on inters
    Most Surprising Result: Button not making any progress
    Least Surprising Result: McLaren screwing up
    Special Mention to: Massa and Kovi for good performances
    Race Rating: 4/10

    I mean it is too conservative, not about pure speed as it was before. Wheel to wheel action is also not quite real.

    I will not agree with that. Development is required to achieve speed, nothing else. Lately all teams do it sustain speed through any possible means that are not yet banned. I can understand reducing speed through safety measures but for excitement factor, F1 can do better.

    I can agree with engine durability but because teams are in charge of this area of development, they can achieve durability without compromising performance. Tires on the other hand are limiting performance and are out of teams’ control.

    Pirellies are awful tires in my opinion, half way through the race you could see 80% of the track covered with marbles. Considering every driver is saving tires, that’s pretty bad. May be next year we’ll fuel car’s lighter too and see how far each driver car get?

    If you want excitement, not that we need it but if you must do it artificially, make 3 stops mandatory and give drivers tires that can last 1000km. This sport if about going fast, not saving fuel/tires/engines and f*cking planet.
